Timeframe: July/August, ~14 days
After reading some of these posts and blogs I'm thinking about booking a flight to Quito, a flight to the island, and maybe 1 night on Santa Cruz, and then winging it from there.
I would try to book one last minute cruise of ~5-7 days at some point during that two week window, and then fill in the gaps on either side of that with land excursions. I would book hotels the day of to stay flexible to this goal.
Is this feasible? Or do I need more advanced plans?
